Maniesh Paul’s Loss Is Karan Singh Grover's Gain In Ekta Kapoor’s Boss: Baap Of Special Services
TV heartthrob Karan Singh Grover is all set for his digital debut with ALTBalaji's upcoming web series, Boss: Baap Of Special Services. As soon as Ekta Kapoor made the official announcement on her social media page, fans started jumping with joy. Ekta had shared the poster of the web series and captioned it as, "The wait is over...The #BOSS - Baap of Special Services has arrived!

Here’s the first look of our upcoming web series starring Karan Singh Grover as The #BOSS and stunning Sagarika Ghatge as Sakshi, the dedicated ACP!#StreamingSoon #ALTBalajiOriginal @altbalaji @shobha9168@iamksgofficial @sagarikaghatge@baljitsinghchaddha @ashishakapoor".

But, did you know that not Karan Singh Grover, Maniesh Paul was the first choice to play the character? A source close to the show told, "Maniesh Paul was supposed to play the character which Karan Singh Grover is essaying in the show. Things were also finalised but a week before the announcement, the actor got replaced and Karan stepped into his shoes. When we dug deeper into the reason behind it, our source said the money Maniesh Paul demanded was high and hence things didn't fall into place.” 

Expressing his excitement about Boss, Karan Singh Grover in a statement said, “My debut on TV was with Balaji and now even on the digital platform. Ekta is the superpower behind the careers of many, including me. ALTBalaji, just feels right! Like it is meant to be! BOSS…from the name of the show to the concept, the extremely talented director Ankush Bhatt, the writer like no other Ghalib and the fact that BOSS herself (Ekta) is creating this series. I couldn’t be happier or more excited.” 

Well clearly, Maniesh's loss has turned out to be Karan’s gain. Along with Karan Singh Grover, Sagarika Ghatge will be seen on the show as the female lead.
